Dear facebook – please fix your languages

Facebook is now sending out notifications *in the preferred language of originator*, instead of the recipient. Someone accepted your friend request but uses Facebook in Spanish? You’ll get the notification e-mail in Spanish.

That is of couse silly. This evening I got a notification in Croatian… Facebook, please fix this.

    Actually, I just saw this bug!

    Jonas Öberg from the FSFE added me on facebook, and the request was in Swedish. WTF? How is that even slightly helpful?

    Also, the fact that I needed to login to your blog (and had to reset my password in order to do so) to leave a comment is anti-social, dude. The more barriers to commenting…the less comments! :)
